♪ lou: the state department insisting that it will not give congress access to survivors of the benghazi terrorist attack. fbi director opening the door to that possibility yesterday when he testified that he has no problems with survivors
7:12 pm
testifying before congress. the state department quickly issuing a statement saying, as we have said in the past, we share the department of justice's concerns and know that they advise congress that i witness interviews outside the criminal justice process could possibly lead to attempts to support the investigation. well, that is not what the fbi director now says. the state department did reveal that it as been quietly offering rewards of up to $10 million since january for affirmation leading to the arrest or conviction of anyone involved in the benghazi attack. and new reports, the central intelligence agency is amassing a huge database of international money transfers that include the financial and personal data of millions of american citizens. that program reportedly being carried out under the same provision of the patriot act empowers the national security agency to collect the phone and
7:13 pm
internet records of nearly all american. the united states reportedly getting close to an interim deal ahead of next week nuclear negotiations that will be held in geneva. as the obama administration urges congress to hold off on new sanctions against iran. joining us now, general jack keene, retired four-star army general, former army vice chief of staff and fox news military analyst. let me begin with this peculiar position that the administration finds itself in and what they hope will be significant in closing negotiations with the iranians in geneva and at the same time going to capitol hill to tell the senate that they don't want any strengthening of sanctions against iran. what do you make of it? >> well, i think we have justifiable concern. so anxious to make a deal that we will make a partial deal.
7:14 pm
clearly the secretary has almost said that demand least a final deal at some point. the fact of the matter is that we will remove some sanctions. the iranians will not take, i don't believe, a major step that they have to take, that is dismantling the program. that is really the deal. why do you have to take baby steps when you know that is what is? it just want the pressure off. i think we will begin to take the pressure off. the iranian cities negotiations for 20 years now. as a step to take one step back in two steps forward. it buys them time and they continue to advance the program. i don't think this is any different for them. unfortunately we seem to be on the same path that we were with the north koreans and negotiated ourselves right into nuclear-weapons with a similar process where taking on now. lou: the process in this case with iran may come as it did with north korea, the to interesting and even hopeful
7:15 pm
results, but never a conclusion that eliminates and resolve the problem. the senators of both parties an appropriations bill tougher sanctions. this has brought the iranians to the negotiating table. they think they can take it angeles. putting more sanctions on the tour will strengthen the hand in those negotiations. lou: a development that surprises many people we can't
7:16 pm
permit that. your thoughts? faugh. >> that's absolute rubbish. a breath of fresh air by the director who is responsible for the investigation. he certainly knows what would be in jeopardy and would not be in jeopardy. he is willing to open it up so that those people can talk to the representatives of the american people. if it is necessary to be in a closed session and keep it within a small boat people, there are plenty of ways to do that. i really applaud the director's comments. what the state department is doing is really unfortunate and i think your response will. lou: turning to the cia, an essay. again, as various principally in
7:17 pm
the news media, we hear allegation after allegation against these two agencies. why is it that the president of the united states himself who is responsible for both agencies, why do you suppose it is that he is not standing up and defending these agencies and asserting a perspective that would reflect his values and is directed to these agencies? >> yeah, i mean, that is such a major point. and both of these agencies are very much involved in radical islam and the threats to the united states as well as the threats to our interest overseas. there are in this war up to their ears, frankly. they are executing the president's policies, as you point out. and so when they are under attack he should be putting his arms around them and taking the brunt of it and telling people, these are policies.
7:18 pm
if we need to review them, we will review them, but he is not doing that. he puts general alexander out their time and time again before one congressional committee after another. i know him very well. as good a man as we ever had. very transparent and forthright. really is unfortunate that you not hear from the president of the united states defending the instruments in the policies that are being implemented for this world. lou: are we to infer from the lack of, if you will, demagoguery that one might normally i think it is fair to say expect from congress or in the senate, we have not seen that emerged. on the president is being acquired, and also appears that capital is exercising and customers. and is not demagoguing this issue trying to seize political advantage. other congresses, others and it's tough those two agencies
7:19 pm
are under attack. >> the thing that has really made a difference here, the heads of a special intelligence let committees. the congressional leaders and also the leaders in the seventh, both highly respected people. they certainly have been major protectors of the agencies involved and the techniques and policies that they are executing. so they are irresponsible. they have the total picture. they have invited other members to come and take a look get some of that evidence and certainly some have availed themselves of that opportunity. a lot have not. that in itself as tamped down the tendency for some to make a lot of of this one and maybe they shouldn't. that's a good point. i really had not thought about it. lou: great to have the year. we are delighted. >> always good talking to you.

7:24 pm
>> stuff like that, you know, to get a lower premium i would include. that's my money. >> go with the silver plan. the lowest one that i see and here right now. water and $609 a month. >> they hate this. they said that they were going to go into my bank account and find out about that. all of this. they pay me cash. >> oh, no. no. i mean, if you don't report that in no. lou: joining us now, founder and president james o'keefe. congratulations on an extraordinary expos they. this latest video, it is a peculiar defense at best that many charge this to my charge
7:25 pm
you with focusing on an isolated instance. did not take you long to approve rules nice little. what do you think is going on? >> well, i think it is two things. a lot of these navigators are not qualified to be in the insurance brokerage business to begin with. there and over their heads. they have no formal training in anything medical. as you can see, lot of them are either incompetent or don't know what the rules are, but it is deception. in this case change happens. a local community organization in houston that receive somewhere around $700,000 of your taxpayer dollars confederal command are advising our reporter wearing a hidden camera to not report income to the irs so that we give more obamacare subsidies. if you're at the federal poverty line you get 100 percent subsidy if you are four times over you get less money from the federal government. it is just a systemic thing. if you're familiar with my work
7:26 pm
i release videos one at a time to grab the naysayers and critics say it is isolated. lou: isolated not in this instance certainly. and a stand yet another video coming out next week. tell us about that. >> well, in the first video we focused on the relationship between battleground taxes which is a political action committee and in rural america which is a 50163 group, and how they work together to achieve a political agenda which is not really what i thought health care was supposed to be about. so what we're going to do is have a little deeper into out people's private medical information and medical data is shared with political action to many sports is shared to achieve political purposes which is what fundamentally this is all about and i think it will be explosive and their release that. lou: do you establish a connection, a direct connection or can you tell us or do you want to tell us at this point between the democratic party and
7:27 pm
its various ancillary organizations and what you have discovered a mocks the navigator's? >> so far we have released two different video pieces. the first video did establish that the battleground taxes which is an organization trying to turn the state into a blue state was on tape. they cross pollinate data. it is illegal for a 501c3 group in this case in rural america, to give anything to a political action committee. there is letter sent to the attorney general of texas in the media today. they're thinking of taking away a nonprofit tax-exempt status for that relationship. we are going to do is go a step further than that. we are going to expose on video some of these people willing to give out private medical debt which is even further than sharing information.
7:28 pm
now they're going to potentially given out they explicitly for political reasons. that is totally illegal and immoral, and i am sure it will be a big story when it comes out lou: it is already a big story. and congratulations on your work this is -- you know, i hear people trying to a discount you as an activist or a provocateur or. as if labels matter. i just want to ask you, what do you refer to yourself as? how would you describe your role and all of this? >> i think i am a journalist. you know, the median no longer does this type of work. think it is some of it is liability. a lot of people have simply become abundance or aggregate years. what we do is knock on doors in the go live into the field, do shoe leather journalism, and it is risky work, expensive, risky. the investigation took us three, four months to do. we gathered a hundred hours of
7:29 pm
footage and we will release a little lead time. but i am a journalist. sixteen is used to do this. abc news used to do this. they no longer do and now they consider me an adversary, and i don't understand why. i am just trying to expose fraud and abuse and waste. that is something that journalists ought to be doing. lou: you are really falling in very long line in american journalism. you are as close as i can imagine anyone right now being in the country to being a muckrakers. that is, for me, a pretty high standard that you are sitting for yourself, and i think you ought to be proud of that label. we salute you here. keep up the great work. >> i appreciate that, and if you want to know more about why people don't do what i do well why people are deterred from what i do, read my book because it will talk about what the media and the government put me through to get to where i am today.
7:30 pm
lou: we will do it. thank you very much. james o'keefe. hhs secretary kathleen sibelius' said the administration is not blaming anybody and then goes off to blast the insurance companies. did i mention, one of the things about the cooperation between the administration and the insurance companies in obamacare is the insurance companies are getting about a trillion dollars of your tax money? to stay with us for much more. lou: obamacare and a rebellion in the democratic party, and even the president's media lap dogs higher starting to bite. but the "a-team". they're going to have fun with this. ♪

7:34 pm
mainstream media may be turning against him, at least slightly. an article in "the new york times" reads that the disastrous rollout of its health care law not only threatens the rest of his agenda, but also raises questions about his confidence in the same way that the bush administration has responded to hurricane katrina and undermines republican efficiency. and can obama rebuild a presidency after this debacle? it may be game over. the editorial board of usa today wrote that obama prescribes an ugly fix for obamacare and the "l.a. times" editorial board saying that allowing people to keep their current policies is a desperate attempt to fill a promise that obama never should have made. but oprah winfrey is sticking by her guy, telling the bbc that there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs and
7:35 pm
maybe even part of many cases because he is african-american. there is no question about that, and that's the kind of thing that no one says. but everybody is thinking it. joining us now to tell us what they are thinking, the editor and publisher, conservative blog, kristol writes. and georgetown professor brad lincoln. thank you both for being here. what is your reaction? let's go down the line. we are watching some of the most liberal newspaper editorial boards and columnist saying that this is game over and it is a mass. >> it does slightly undermine the myth of the liberal media. but it's been a rough week at this point in the rollout has not been part of this. >> i mean, it has been immense. and i think that it is an open

question about what the long-term implications are. long-term political damage to the president. lou: i'm not asking you to speculate on the future. i'm asking you to react to the fact that these newspapers are criticizing the president openly and directly and straightforwardly without pulling any punches. >> unsupportive. >> i mean, come on. lou: you don't see it as a new development? >> these are reporters and columnists and that is correct. >> barely supportive? they have their lips affixed. >> and that burst blood they shout that. >> it has taken some time for a man who hasn't succeeded in a single initiative beyond obamacare. kristol, what is your reaction? >> i agree with you, lou. "the new york times" from "the washington post", usa today,
7:37 pm
they have all had their time wrapped around obama's presidency that they can't even see the light of day and i think that this is a new development. i think the reason that they are criticizing the president is because each day brings a new embarrassment that is in their face, the failure of obamacare, that they would have no credibility if they didn't call the president on the fact that this is his signature legislation and he refuses, even a press conference yesterday, to take ownership and accountability for it. he comes out and says, on another website had these problems. you'd think i'd be that stupid and go and market? well, yes, we do. lou: turning to brad, if i may. asking you. this president right now. he is being defended by oprah winfrey who has played the race card. and in the midst of this, it is
7:38 pm
just bizarre. the reaction we're getting here. >> it's an outrage for her to allege that he would be incompetent. in these organizations, they are the very ones that created this. so the fact is that they are only turning on obama because they are forced to. the american people are understanding full well the incompetency and the veracity of this president, that it is just without major. they are being hurt by it. they are forced to do something they should have done long ago it "fast and furious" and ungodly and the irs and now it has come where his chickens are coming home to roost. lou: we will come back and our next question will begin about why didn't we know more about the trillion dollar britain check to the insurance companies? is this really a federal program, or is it corporate welfare obamacare? check us out on twitter and let us hear from you. call us at lou dobbs news and

nearly 16 billion that they lost last year. that is progress. in fact with the "a-team." the president has a trillion dollar bailout for the insurance companies with which he has been working over the course of obamacare. i thought this was about helping people find insurance. >> i love you focusing on us because i don't understand what they are doing this health care equation and i'm going to try to convince you that we won't have a problem with these companies. >> my work is not done here. lou: your work is not done. before you go farther, let's talk about capitalism and free enterprise with the economy, because that is how you have a

preservation. but they can point to it back in their home district. but the constituent should ask why did you go for this bill in the first place. and obamacare has become the democrats too big to fail. look at all the money to unions and the 3000 carveouts. this is something that republicans need to be really smart on and understand that maybe we need to take this next step to the courts. the president had overstepped his bounds and i think that that connects a path. lou: thank you both for being here. up next, a brand-new book from margaret thatcher on leadership. leading today's conservative movement and we will be talking with the authors. i am joined by the authors coming up next. fedex one rate. really makes my life easier.
